Our brand new £70 million building, STEAMhouse, provides a new teaching and learning space for our computing and digital technology students, as well as the chance for students to learn from businesses in residency.

What is STEAMhouse?

Welcome to STEAMhouse, the new home of Computing and Digital Technology. Let's take a look around. STEAMhouse has many teaching rooms across four floors which are open and mouldable and offer agile learning. This is Challenge Hub, STEAMhouse's major event space. Many external and internal guest speakers have been invited to STEAMhouse sessions - just in this very room such as the Mayor of Birmingham, the Vice Chancellor, guest speakers and the Chambers of Commerce. There's also been many cool events such as Careers Fair and Innovation Fest. It's a great opportunity for students network with local businesses and professionals, right next to where you'll be studying. This is STEAMhouse's production space it's used by local businesses to print, prototype and manufacture products. It's a great opportunity for students to network with business professionals, especially if they're aspiring entrepreneurs. This is the co-working space where businesses can meet, network and collaborate. It's in the heart of STEAMhouse right next to the Business Incubator and the teaching rooms. This is the STEAMhouse incubator, home of many businesses with their own office space. Being so close to teaching facilities opens up so many opportunities for students to get involved. This is one of STEAMhouse's innovative classrooms which offers open spaces for you to learn. There's also lots of comfy study areas for you to come and catch up on your work. Just look at this amazing environment.
